The 2012 season is about two months away, and it’s a perfect time to rank NFL players by position. A combination of factors such as stats, overall performance, etc., determine where players are ranked. Analysis will be added very soon, I just wanted to get these rankings done first.*Player ages are how old they will be on September 5th, NFL Kickoff date.

Suspended Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma has amended his lawsuit against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league, asking a federal judge in New Orleans to overturn his suspension and issue a preliminary injunction that would allow Vilma to work while the case is pending.
Vilma's latest legal maneuver Thursday came shortly after Goodell filed a motion to dismiss Vilma...
From the moment Giants 101 was launched in 2004, James Douglas, known to all of us here as "JD in Dallas" and later "JD in LI", was a daily fixture and regular commentor. He was a good-hearted, lovable man who, for quite some time, was buried in enemy territory. His devotion to the New York Giants never wavered as he took on Dallas Cowboys fans daily.
Ray Perkins told the New York Post that he thinks “Tom Coughlin’s got another 15, 20 years in him,’’
The 70-year-old Perkins recently took on a new job as a head coach at a junior college, Jones County Junior College, and he himself wants to stay on the job for 20 years.
The audience laughed but he was serious, adding “He does. He works out, he takes care of himself...
Know how to get under the skin of any New York Giants fan real fast?
Tell them that Tony Romo is better than Eli Manning.
That might be a common opinion coming from a Cowboys fan, but for one of the Giants' all-time great receivers to voice that opinion...that is unacceptable.
But those are the exact thoughts expressed this week by former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer...
Hot News for QB Drew Brees
According to ESPN’s John Clayton, the New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees are still about $1 million apart from agreeing on a new contract.
“They’re really about a million dollars apart as far as trying to get a deal done,” said Clayton.
If both sides are so close to getting a deal done, the only reason I can think that they haven’t finalized anything...
Look, being a New England Patriots fan, this is the bitter, jagged pill to swallow. However, we have to give credit where credit is due. Most of the NFL can make assumptions mainly because their team can’t get anywhere near the Super Bowl, let alone win it. Eli Manning have broken Patriots hearts on two occasions, and that’s enough for us to say: “Give it up will you?”...
Co-Hosting on Sirius XM NFL Radio’s Movin’ the Chains Thursday afternoon, former Giants WR Amani Toomer and Host Tim Ryan took a call from a fan asking who they thought would win the NFC East.
The former Giant was quick with an answer and said that he thought the Cowboys had the best chance:
“I’m thinking the Cowboys, I just think that they” Tim Ryan butts in and says “That’s sacril...
With a significant amount of attention again being paid to retired New York Giants running back Tiki Barber in recent days, it was actually his former teammate, wide receiver Amani Toomer, who stole the show on Thursday. While appearing on Sirius XM radio, Toomer said he believes Dallas Cowboys signal caller Tony Romo is a [...]
Despite winning his second Super Bowl, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning still has his detractors. If you ask some fans, they would call Manning the equivalent of a hot goalie.
Former Giants receiver, Amani Toomer, might have said a few things that might serve as motivation for Manning this upcoming season. On the Sirius XM NFL show, Movin' the Chains, which Toomer co...
Here we go again! It’s time for Tony Romo vs. Eli Manning. The experts like Ron Jaworski have Romo ranked as the 10th best QB in the NFL. He has not ranked the top five yet, but Manning will do no worse than number five on his list. The NFLN recently completed their list of the top 100 players as voted by the players and Romo is ranked 91st and Manning is ranked 31st. What...
Prior to last season, there were probably a number of people who believed that Tony Romo was a better quarterback than Eli Manning. Now, that population is nearing extinction. Manning is a two-time Super Bowl MVP and Romo has won one playoff game in his career. Last season, Eli led more fourth-quarter comebacks than anyone in the league and lit up the stat sheet in the process. Despite...
This is why I'd take Manning over Romo in a heartbeat.
Anytime someone talks about Tony Romo as an elite quarterback, I tend to cringe a little and walk away. Every now and then, someone like Amani Toomer compares Romo to another established quarterback, in this case Eli Manning, and says Romo is the better quarterback. From a purely numbers perspective, Tony Romo is a very...
